@Andrew_Krammer As Taylor Heinicke deals with mild concussion and oblique strain, #Vikings could call Leidner back in p-squad search

The Devil whispered in the Viking's ear, "There's a storm coming." The Viking replied, "I am the storm." ‪#‎SKOL2017 #BringitHome‬

Yup. When you claim someone off waivers they have to be put on active roster.

I think I agree, though it's a little surprising Eric Wilson wasn't on there. Maybe over Gedeon.

(RotoWire) Hodges (head) was waived by the Vikings off injured reserve Tuesday after both sides reached an injury settlement, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

@christomasson

Not practicing for #Vikings was LB Anthony Barr Was in sweats and hoodie Unclear what his injury is but we'll find out when report comes out

Lamur filled in for Barr at strong-side linebacker.
Barr injured would hurt us at the linebacker position. I feel we're not that strong there anyway.

Barr out with a hamstring.

Elijah Lee signed to 49ers.

Brock (groin) said he'll be out there Sunday.
